Education for the Head, Heart, and Hand - Northfield Mount Hermon engages the intellect, compassion, and talents of our students, empowering them to act with humanity and purpose.
When Northfield Mount Hermon was founded more than 100 years ago, a sense of purpose was at the heart of its mission. From the beginning, we were dedicated to providing an education for the head, heart, and hand. Today, that goal remains as strong as ever, as we expand the concept of a purposeful education to address the needs and challenges of the 21st century.
As we see it, a purposeful education is made up of three main elements: Knowledge, Opportunities, and Citizenship.
Knowledge. At NMH, we provide the broadest range of subjectsincluding English, science, math, history, world languages, religion, arts, engineering, technology, equity and justice, and health and wellnessall of which can be explored in depth, courtesy of our distinctive College Model Academic Program (CMAP).
